The institute will house programs to educate and train about 2,500 people annually, including biopharmaceutical professionals and bioprocessing engineering students, to produce potentially life-saving biotherapeutic drugs. It will also provide workforce training and certifications through regional educational partnerships.

Spring House Innovation Park is a 133-acre, multi-use campus — consisting of office, laboratory and research and development space — on the former Rohm and Haas Co. campus. The park is part of the BioLaunch611+ Keystone Innovation Zone.
